Preparing Manuscripts for Publications


Mar. 8, 2021, 4pm to 5pm

Office/Remote Location



As graduate students, academic journals are a staple in your academic studies, whether it is through reading, analysis, or writing a manuscript for publication. There are many reasons why graduate students choose to write a manuscript: to share original research; to have your work evaluated by peers; to advocate for policy change; or to support personal academic advancement. Whatever the reason, writing a manuscript also provides an excellent learning experience, promotes critical thinking and enhances the ability to be more concise in their writing.

The purpose of this workshop is to help new and returning graduate students submit their work to academic journals by exploring manuscript types, tips and tricks. This workshop will help smooth the bumpy path from initial stages of an idea to publication.

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Learn about different types of manuscripts including: Original Research, Rapid Communications, Review Articles, Case Studies, Clinical Trial, Book Review, Perspective, Opinion and Commentary.
  • Think about why you want to publish your work – and whether it's publishable.
  • Review target journals in major fields
  • Learn about journal requirements through the Guide for Authors, structure of the paper, and publication ethics.
  • Learn about the publishing cycle: from submission and peer review through to decision time
